Chipping Campden International Music Festival

The Chipping Campden International Music Festival was first held in 2002 and has grown in stature and size year on year. Now widely recognised as one of the UK’s leading festivals, it has visitors from Europe, America and Australia, as well as from all over the UK. The festival has become a favourite with many of the world’s finest musicians who come to perform every year in the beautiful Cotswold town.

The festival runs annually in May bringing two weeks of music to St James’ Church as well as running workshops in local schools. The Festival Academy Orchestra was formed to offer advanced students and recent graduates the opportunity to perform alongside professional orchestral players and world class soloists.

The 2018 festival runs from 12-26 May and features renowned musicians including Paul Lewis, Stephen Osbourne, The Jerusalem Quartet, Alina Ibragimova and Stephen Hough among many others.
